High Performance Transportation Fuels & Biochemical Alcohols

Alcohol Solutions

Higher Mixed Alcohol Fuel

  • Water-, oil-, and coal-soluble, biodegradable alcohol fuel formula
  • 109-138 octane, depending on fuel blend
  • Continuous 24×7 gas-to-liquid fuel synthesis, near zero process emissions
  • Blends with gasoline, diesel and coal to increase combustion efficiency
  • U.S. EPA registration approved for blending and use in gasoline and diesel engines
  • Use blended at 10-30% (gasoline engines) or up to 95% in flex-fuel vehicles
  • Use blended at 5-6% (diesel engines) for no black smoke and increased mileage
  • Dramatically reduces tailpipe and smokestack emissions
  • No engine modifications required for use in cars, trucks, ships, trains, planes, etc.
  • Produced from all types of solid, liquid and gaseous carbon feedstocks
  • Does not require planting, watering, harvesting and fermenting food crops

Specialty Biochemical Alcohols

  • Clean, isotopically correct alcohols
  • Inexpensive to produce
  • Food grade
  • Produced with renewable feedstocks
  • 100% supply chain transparency
  • Allergen-free

Higher mixed alcohol synthesis technology converts trash, garbage, biomass and fossil feedstocks into finished, market-ready alcohols in two steps:

1. Syngas Production:

Gasification of Solid and Liquid Wastes, Biomass, Coal, Petroleum Coke

Gasification is a thermal conversion process that cleanly converts solid and liquid carbonaceous materials (feedstocks) into carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2) syngas by reacting raw material at high temperature with a controlled, reduced amount of oxygen and/or steam.

Steam Reformation of Natural Gas (Methane) and CO2

Steam Reformation converts any form of methane/natgas or methane and CO2 into carbon monoxide and hydrogen syngas.

2. Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) Fuel Catalysis:

Syngas derived from either of the above front-end methods is then processed through a fixed-bed GTL reactor to produce biodegradable, water-, oil-, and coal-soluble alcohols. The blended fuel formula can then be sent directly to fuel markets, or separated (fractionated) into its constituent alcohols for producing a wide variety of value-added products for the biochemicals industry.

Note: Gasification of solid and liquid feedstocks presents the broadest range of low-cost feedstocks and project siting options, as well as incentives for use of renewable feedstocks. However, conversion of methane/natgas and CO2 gases is the simplest conversion pathway, and therefore most efficient and profitable method, for producing this vehicle-ready fuel, as well as biochemical alcohols.
